"The Ultimate Fighter" season six alum Troy "Rude Boy" Mandaloniz is packing on the pounds for his next fight.

The Hilo, Hawaii native will on Tuesday sign his bout agreement for a welterweight scrap with Paul Kelly at UFC 95 on Feb. 21 in London, England. Kelly is expected to sign his agreement in the coming days.


I predict a round 2 GnP stoppage for Kelly.

Is this going to be the co-main event?
I am so blown away how solid this fight is going to be.....


LOL

But serious, how are guys like these even making it onto the card? UFC has sooooo many stacked fighters, to ignore these guys. Cause I can personally care less, and will be using the washroom during this fight.

It`s all part of the Monopoly Dana has on this whole MMA thing. He keeps around fighters from the TUF show and hopes that because they were on a show, that casual fans will think they are big stars even though marks for this shit, pretty much anyone who posts on this board, know they arent established and know they will get their asses beat. Of course this is always a risk as with the CB fight, spoon feeding Bisping and people like Maynard having upsets ( his fight with Edgar), tend to happen more often then not so maybe he does have a point. I fully agree with RAMPAGEOWNEDYOU. Mandaloniz should be TKO`d in the second.

Another mediocre fight with little to no importance in the division. The cards have improved, but English fight fans always seem to get the fuzzy end of the lollipop with their UFC events. At least there are a couple interesting matchups at MW for this event (Maia/Sonnen, Marquardt/Gouveia).

Kelly should be able to handle Mandaloniz pretty easily. Hopefully its at the very least a competitive fight.

Paul Kelly is too talented to be fighting Troy.

should be a decent scrap, neither have much of a ground game so i see this ending fairly early, possibly in the second.

i dont understand why the writer would say he's packing on the pounds though, wasn't rude boy a welterweight on the show? i dont see why they would fight at 170 if they both should be at 155, ah well, i like troy but i dont like his chances in this one. quit hatin, not every fight has to be main event quality, relax and hope for the best.

Paul should walk all over Troy. For a guy who's been training with BJ for so long you would expect a solid ground game, but he has looked very green in that area. It's surprising they're bringing Troy back after having not taken a fight in a year after his win over Richie Hightower (big whoop).

Should be an easy take em' down and pound em' out victory for Paul.

I'll admit i first thought "boring" as well as most ppl it appears. But it could still be an exciting fight. Paul Kelly is pretty solid. Davis was out of his league, clearly, but he could still make some interesting fights in the future. He trains with Bisping and now Rampage, who are both also ever-improving. I expect we'll see a strong showing from kelly in this fight. First round finish.

Well IMO Mandaloniz has a "Rude awakening" coming. Paul Kelly is no joke. His is a hard hitting fast paced bloke. If he does run through troy with his right he'll get em wit a choke. Ok that was a weak a55 rymthe but i am drunk and think its funny
